Bio and Links
Bio Photo I would like to thank all of the volunteers who take the time to enter the SACs and information I send to them. I do research the information with Census, birth/marriage/death records and obituaries before I submit the request.

In response to an email I sent to a librarian at the Brooklyn Collection of the Brooklyn Public Library, I was told it is okay to retype an obituary or a death notice, in whole or in part, from the collection at the BDE and post it to FindAGrave memorials. The newspaper should be cited as the source. It is an orphan publication since the publisher is no longer in business so there is no copyright infringement.


Please visit Marcy Border's memorial, a 9-11 survivor who recently succumbed to stomach cancer and Cassandra Ann Morton's memorial, a murder victim who's case is still unsolved.


Please DO NOT POST DUPLICATE HEADSTONE PHOTOS ON ANY MEMORIALS I CREATE OR MANAGE. There is no reason to have two (or more) headstone photos. If the memorial is un-sponsored there is limited space. If your photo shows more detail than mine, please contact me via email to discuss it.


I will transfer memorials unless it's my direct ancestor or I'm more closely related than the requester. My goal is to reunite memorials I have created to family members. You can send the request via the suggest any other correction link under the edits tab.


You are welcome to use any photos that I have taken and posted on FindAGrave for personal use and/or not-for-profit genealogical Web sites. Please reference Find A Grave and the memorial number that you copied the photo from.

Transfer is complete. Your note is very interesting. My wife's maiden name is Rivard. Are you saying her family also goes back to Nicholas and Robert? Her family is from southeastern Michigan north of Detroit.

RE: Wieda Family
I'm not sure what you know about the Wieda sisters. Sophia and Betty are buried in Oak Grove Cemetery in Manistee. Emma (Herman) Hirshman is buried in Deepdale Memorial Park in Lansing. Marie (Nicholas) Haan is buried in Oak Grove Cemetery in Grand Rapids. Ella (Thomas) Scanlin is buried in Woodlawn Cemetery in Grand Rapids. The youngest son, George Peter, is buried in Chapel Hill Memorial Garden in Kentwood. I hope this might help you with the family.

Abraham Bloch

I sent this to your outside mailbox but don't know if that email is still active.

Do you happen to remember or have notes on where you got the information you posted on Find A Grave for Abraham Bloch buried at Mt Carmel in Queens, New York?  I am trying to confirm that this Abraham Bloch was my great grandfather's brother.  Some of the information matches, some of it almost matches but not quite.

RE: Joseph Wellwood Foster Sr.
That is very nice of you. I was hoping that you might be related and have info that could help me break through a wall I have been stuck at for years! Lol

Out of curiosity... I saw you left flowers on my great great grandfather's page (Joseph Wellwood Foster Sr). I read you are researching the last name Foster. Are you related or was that something you did out of respect for someone with the same last name you are researching?

Christina. I added the info that you sent to Julius Richter's memorial. I accidentally deleted the email that you sent with the info on Olga Richter. Can you send that again?
